Students in the Digital Media Management program study digital communication and contribute to the conversation, both in business and entertainment.
They learn how to manage various forms of digital media, including music, television, movies and games, and explore the business world’s adoption of digital. In addition to core business areas, such as accounting, marketing, economics and management, students delve into digital marketing, project management and social networking.

"I know how important it is for students to go through their college life and learn the real-life skills and knowledge that they can use when they graduate and start their careers. This is what I craved as an undergraduate! The Digital Media Management major ensures that students have an in-depth understanding of the theory, but most importantly, they have the opportunity to apply that understanding to real-life scenarios to fully prepare them for life after college."
– Juli James, PhD, assistant professor of Marketing
